As I watched some of the G20 protests I noticed something.

G20: Riot police were out in force in Pittsburgh.

G20: Violence was anticipated and expected.

Tea parties – 9/12: People may have shouted now and then, but otherwise everything was peaceful.

Tea parties – 9/12: Police presence was normal for crowd control (and the crowd didn’t really need any controlling).

G20: Lots of masked people.

Tea parties – 9/12: I didn’t see any masks.

Tea parties – 9/12: Lots of children as parents knew they were safe.

G20: No children. That’s a good thing. If there were any children there, the parents should be charged with child endangerment.

G20: Arrests.

Tea parties – 9/12: No arrests that I know of.
